mimijumi's blog: Better Feeding for all Babies

Breastfeeding and Transitioning Back to Work

March 01, 2017

 

Three weeks ago, at 3 months old, my daughter started daycare. Two weeks prior to starting, my husband and I began offering her a bottle and we quickly realized we were in for a struggle. She'd mostly play with the nipple of the bottles, let the milk dribble in her mouth and then she'd spit it out.

Baby Number 2 Doesn't Make Me an "Expert".

September 28, 2016

 

I admit it:  Second time mothers think they know everything. If something worked well or well enough with the first child, we plan to give the second the same treatment and not change a thing. But let’s face it—this would only work if nothing were different. Something is always different.

I was a NICU mother with my first child.  Having spent critical ‘latching’ weeks in the NICU, my first newborn just wasn’t interested in breastfeeding when she was released.  When she finally came home, I was happy just to have her in my arms and I wasn’t going to insist on breastfeeding. We had all been through enough.


My second baby latched immediately and breastfeeding was quickly established.  Already, we were in uncharted parenting waters.  This baby would feed almost exclusively from me. While I obliged, we had two factors to consider.  First of all, I would be going back to work soon.  Second, my husband, who had bonded so nicely with our first baby, felt detached with our second little bundle of joy because he wasn’t involved in the feeding routine.  A bottle would definitely need to be part of the mix.

Why I Never Lost Faith in Penelope Trunk

September 12, 2016

 

Thank you, Penelope, for finding a compelling way to tell the mimijumi story as only you could.

When I first contacted you, I wanted you to write about our bottles because I admire your unique voice. 

Or as I wrote at the time:

I've always enjoyed your direct, no-nonsense attitude. See problem. Address problem. See next problem (sometimes caused by attempt to solve original problem). Address problem. Rinse. Repeat.”

Does Facebook Hate Mom Bods?

May 10, 2016

 

At mimijumi, we make the world’s best baby bottle that looks, feels and functions just like a breast, so we’ve become accustomed to the censors at Facebook rejecting photos of our baby bottles. We hope it is because the Facebook electronic algorithms pick up the skin-like tone and texture of our bottles and confuse them for real breasts, not because a Facebook engineer needs to get out more often.
